Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz
>>Are you concerned about Facebook's privacy [In Audible], obviously, some of your users might feel
exposed, and I know that, you know, obviously, you just announced a new privacy page on pulse and
the flicker connect thing was full of reassurances that it would only be for public feeds, but do you
think their users are going to feel comfortable?
>>Well we feel quite fortunate; we're actually, in a recent study the most trusted technical brand on
the web and actually the most trusted technical brand period. So we feel really good about that.
Young was taking privacy very seriously for a long time. We have also , not only in privacy, but we also
take very seriously the neighborhood, so making sure we really can watch what's coming onto the
page and cut spam and phishing and nudity and all those things that people just keep shoving at you.
So we have a lot of technology that does that, we have a lot of people watching that technology, and
we've worked really really hard on having our privacy policies be extremely simple, because it is
important to people.
>>Yeah definitely, and what is your personal approach to privacy, certainly Mark Zacerberg seems to
have a strongly held belief that the more information out there, the better about people, do you
agree with that?
>>I think it that's totally personal issue. Some people really like to be right out there, I don't. I don't
think it has anything to do with what I think. It's that, every person gets to have a choice and it should
be very clear to them how to dial in those choices.
>>Well that's kind of exactly the opposite of how Facebook has operated over the last six months.
>>Different people, yeah, but that's not, I'm not here to say they have or haven't, I mean I would
admit a lot of their policies are pretty confusing, but I think they're learning, they're a young
company, they're going to learn from this.
